Donor Parking Privileges

Our new home on the Embarcadero offers more than just breathtaking views of the city and the bay. It also has the benefit of being accessible from every direction by public transit. Driving and biking are options as well. For more information, see Getting Here.

Parking for Exploratorium Donors

The Exploratorium is pleased to partner with the Levi's Plaza garage to provide donors with a convenient parking option. The Levi’s Plaza garage is located at 1453 Sansome Street, a 10- to 15-minute walk from the Exploratorium.

Donors should present their Exploratorium donor card to attendants at the Levi's Plaza garage. Request a validation for your parking ticket at the Front Desk or Information Desk in Pier 15. Validation is for up to four hours per visit.

  • Chairman’s Circle donors receive complimentary and guaranteed parking at the Levi's Plaza garage.

  • Innovator-level donors have several parking options:
    • During evenings and weekends, receive a reduced parking rate at the Levi's Plaza garage; parking is subject to availability.
    • There is an hourly parking lot across the street and metered parking along the streets near the museum.
